Michael Crake

Profile of a Texture

elbows miss opponents

fence squares contort

breakfast corroded on beige plates

napkins avoid personas

   she carries money in a transparent box

white bikini entrance
her teeth lit by performances

he paces outside a bar

clothes impersonate the bedroom

knuckle introspection

pepper carcass on the counter

her voice provoked another walk

after the atrophy of avoided voices

gutter perimeter watches

   stripped blue surface

    fur settles rectangle

   unapproachable design

summary of apologies

opposite hands
intersect below
jacket sleeves

turned mattress
springs exposed

tentative aisles of the grocery store

         expired magazine waiting room
